After 0 fragments, new files installed, unrelated fragments appear?


Forsaken

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am unsure how fragmentation occurs?

 

I used Defraggler and got all files to 0 fragments except $MFT file was in 2 fragments. I downloaded some new files and those files were fragmented which I understand. But then some new fragments appeared from a computer game I have installed. I did not play this game since I defragmented.

 

Can someone please explain why this occurs?

 

Thank you.

Sadly that's how it works on Windows. I think of Windows as a messy child. As soon as you clean the room (defragment) s/he starts to make it messy again.

Hey,

 

Those horrible red squares tho...

 

Thank you for your response.

Not sure what you mean

Sorry was a bad joke, saying I don't like seeing the fragmented squares on a Defragmentation Application. 

 

But you confirmed for me that it cannot be solved as new fragments will appear for any files when new files are generated.

 

Now I have started Fragment analysis then selecting all fragmented files and just defragging those.

a much, much better idea.

what you were originally chasing was the Holy Grail - simply impossible to achieve, and sustain.
